Today, I'm sharing a rather different skirt pattern with you.
The Structured Drape Skirt
1. Your hip measurement
2. Your desired length
Begin by drawing a rectangle that is half of your hip measurement with at least a 1/2" added for ease, by the length that you would like for your skirt to be.
You can find a short tutorial I did on creating an elastic waistband here, http://rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2012/03/fabulous-free-pattern-friday_30.html Once the elastic has been sewn into the waistline, push the angled seam into the skirt and arrange the drapes. I did a small thread tack at the base of each drape to hold them in place. If I had made the skirt out of a fabric with more drape, this would not be necessary. Keep in mind that the more drape the fabric has, the more the seam will drape and not stand out as much as mine does.
